Paperboys is a world-renowned cinematography partnership between Simon Cook and Jordan Eberlein. Between the two of them, they have over 25 years of filming experience specializing in epic wedding films. Jordan got his degree in film at UMBC, and Simon got his journalism degree from GMU. Within Paperboys, Simon and Jordan are able to bring their unique skillsets to the table in a creative and collaborative environment producing work that has been featured around the world. Simon and Jordan also are opposed to growing ponytails and mustaches, seeing firsthand how the "creepy videographer" ruined many weddings during the 90s early 2000s. They feel it is their responsibility to right the ship. So Paperboys presses on.

Simon is simply AMAZING. I want to thank his parents for raising such an awesome human being. Truly a class act! Simon was the wedding vendor that I was most excited to have. I booked him early to ensure that I could have him on my big day. He was uber prompt and responsive to all of my questions and concerns, and was even flexible with accepting the required deposit in multiple payments. We were all set and ready to go! Fast forward to the week before my wedding...There was a bit of a financial snafu that risked us being able to complete the contracted requirements to have Simon shoot our big day, but he did not let that get in the way of anything. He and another Paperboys videographer (I forget his name) showed up and were as great as I imagined they'd be! All of our guests and even the other wedding vendors that were hired, made it a point to tell me how personable, professional and just plain nice he was. It was almost as if he wasn't a hired vendor, but a part of the family. He and the other Paperboys videographer fit right in. I am eternally grateful for Simon's great spirit, understanding and flexibility and making my one wedding dream of he and his team capturing my wedding day come true!! I truly appreciate you, Paperboys! -Your 10/20 Bride Leah

Simon was incredible to work with. Not only were we blown away in the end by the video he produced, he was a wonderfully calming presence on the day of the wedding. He got everything he needed for a great video while never making us feel uncomfortable or overwhelmed. Truthfully, he was just REALLY fun to be around....a perfect balance of professional and funny. I remember thinking to myself at the time, if he wasn't filming this thing I would still want him here!

Simon and Jordan were so easy to work with. They made us feel comfortable right from the start and it felt like I had two of my closest friends by my side throughout the day. We had a long day with two ceremonies and a reception and Simon and Jordan were able to get all of it! There were so many beautiful moments captured that we weren't even aware of because of all the excitement going on around us. Our video came out beautiful and better than we could have imagined. All of our friends and family loved re-living the day every time it was viewed and we received so many compliments on it. Simon and Jordan were patient, fun, had great energy and were very professional.

Simon and the Paperboys are the most outstanding professionals we have ever worked with. Seriously. And I am not just talking about weddings. I am talking about every facet of life. If I could give them 10 stars, I would. Simon will not just produce a magnificent video (that you will want to share with your friends, and which will be in, in many ways, even more amazing than your wedding itself), but also delight and charm and blow away your expectations along the way. He is not just a one-of-a-kind videographer - he is also a delightful human being. You will find yourself thinking that you would have liked to invite him to your wedding, even if only as a guest! I could not give a more enthusiastic recommendation. Simon and his team were my favorite part about our wedding (aside from the person I married, of course).

It is rare to find a wedding videographer that you'd also like to have as a guest at your own wedding! Simon is that person. He is hilarious, positive, and deeply kind and generous. And his level of artistry is just unmatched by others in his field. His videos are a work of art (nerd confession: my husband and i have spent many a night just enjoying his stream of wedding videos!) and somehow capture the idiosyncrasies that make each couple special. I could not give a higher recommendation - just check out the quality of the videos on his website to be convinced! We love you Simon!

Simon is an artist. He doesn't just film your day, he tells your story. We knew after watching a few of his videos last year that we HAD to book Simon. He was the first vendor we booked as soon as we confirmed our date. Simon was always responsive and, best of all, made my husband and me feel very at ease. He got to know us before our wedding day so we'd be comfortable shooting with him on the day of. Simon produced a same-day edit for us was able to capture our day so seamlessly. It's amazing that he was able to complete the project for us to show to our guests at the reception. Don't hesitate, book this guy for the best wedding video you could ever imagine.

My husband didn't think we really needed a videographer, but when we got our highlight video from Simon, he completely agreed it was worth every penny (and he teared up). You can really get a sense of our whole day. Other wedding videos are too much fluff, too many shots of the couple kissing in various locations. Simon included many detail shots (cake, church, rings, centerpieces, etc), getting ready, taking photos with our wedding party, first look, parts of the ceremony, guests mingling at cocktail hour, speeches, bride & dad dance, groom & mom dance, first dance, cake cutting, dancing, and more. My siblings sang a few funny songs as part of my sister's maid of honor speech, which were too long to include in the highlight video of course. But Simon did include a few parts, and even matched up the 8 counts and song beats so it doesn't seem choppy! It's as if that's exactly how they performed it. Amazing. I absolutely love seeing people's reactions and interactions that I didn't get to see on the day. My mom has watched our video every single day, multiple times per day, since we received it a few weeks ago. My brother is so proud of it that he shows his own friends I don't even really know. If you work with Simon, in addition to getting an epic wedding video, he will make you laugh and feel completely at ease as you get ready and do all the pre-wedding shots. Then during the ceremony and reception, he's a ninja filming without anybody noticing. I don't know how he got some of the shots he did. I HIGHLY recommend going for at least the Cat's Pajamas package to get the ceremony or reception audio clips included in your highlight video. This package also gets you 2 videographers. WORTH IT. Everyone would make a few minor tweaks to their wedding, but there is nothing about Simon's work that I would change. He is awesome.

Simon did a fantastic job providing video coverage of our June 2016 wedding in Baltimore City, MD. We decided to book Simon after interviewing several videographers and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. Simon delivered a stunning highlight video and we are certain the rest of the footage will be great too. He responds promptly to emails and was a pleasure to work with on the wedding day. We never felt like the videographer was "in our face" or in the face of our guests - which was a key factor in our decision to get a videographer. The second shooter was equally pleasant and professional. I am so grateful for the beautiful images Simon captured and would absolutely recommend couples book him if he is available!

My husband initially balked at hiring a wedding videographer, but he certainly ate his words after watching the film Simon created for us. Even though we had amazing photos, the video captured the emotion of the day - a crack in my voice while reading vows, the energy of dancing friends, and the joy of two families brought together. I watched a TON of videos prior to finding Simon, but his work left a lasting impression. Simon was a dream to work with. He has a great personality that helped make an otherwise stressful day, that much more manageable. He's also a gifted ninja. There were numerous shots in our video that I had no idea he'd capture, as I barely saw him during the night! My favorite interaction with Simon: As he was wrapping up at the end of the night, he found us to say goodbye and left us with "Thanks for inviting me, I had a great time!". That statement continues to make us smile. Our hats off to you Sir - we LOVE our video. In sum, hire Simon!

Simon is a freaking genius. From the first time I sent him an email all the way through the production of our highlight clip, he was responsive, professional, and just an expert at what he does. He captured shots that I did not even know were possible, nor did I see him taking. Simon is a tall dude (over 6'2 easily) and has a big camera and still managed to almost seem invisible throughout the night all while capturing our favorite moments and minute details. In hindsight, I wish I had booked his assistant also, no knock on his work or capabilities, but he just could not be in 2 places at once, which meant that the groom and the groomsmen getting ready was not captured. That is my only regret and it was a personal decision, again not a Simon thing. If you are debating whether or not you "need" a videographer, just stop and book Simon because he helps you relive the entire day, which will go by like a whirlwind. Simon is the BOMB!

My husband and I agree that Simon Cook was hands-down one of the very best decisions we made for our wedding, aside from marrying each other! We were truly blown away by his work and the incredible video he created. The videography so perfectly captured the day, the emotions, our families, our friends, every small moment. It was honestly more than we thought was possible! It is so much more than a photograph or simple video could ever do. It was truly the best money we invested, and we have already watched our video over and over again! Simon captured more than we ever thought a videographer could (he even used drones!) and expertly knew which moments (and which our dearest loved ones) should be included in our highlight video. And boy, did he make us look good! :) Friends and family continue to tell us what an amazing video it is! On top of his truly exemplary videography, Simon is simply a kind, responsive, thoughtful person. He charmed our parents and the wedding party and made sure to get the perfect shot, all while being as unobtrusive as possible! He is beyond kind and super responsive. Simon was truly a delight to work with. I cannot recommend him highly enough! Thank you Simon, for creating the most incredible video we have ever seen. Your work so expertly documents timeless memories that would otherwise only exist in our hearts and still frames. We can't wait to show your video to our grandkids one day. We will be forever glad that we chose Simon Cook! :)
